The Philippine Centre

for St. Pio of Pietrelcina, Inc.


Welcome to the official site of The Philippine Centre for St. Pio of Pietrelcina!

Our center was established and registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission in 1983 principally to promote religious devotion to St. Pio and coordinate his growing number of devotees in the country.

We are a non-stock, non-profit organization whose main goals are centered on encouraging formation of St. Pio prayer groups all over the country and further advancing the awareness of the Filipino people with regards to the social and charitable programs of the late St. Pio. 

The center fosters, solicits and encourages devotions to St. Pio and spreads his good works with the help of charitable contributions from the public.  If you would like to help us advance our mission of promoting St. Pio and his ideals, please click here.

The Philippine Center for St. Pio of Pietrelcina was given the privilege of owning a number of relics of St. Pio. These relics are venerated after our Masses and novena prayers in our chapel.

“I want only to be a poor friar who prays... Pray, hope and don’t worry.  Worry is useless.  God is merciful and will hear your prayer... Prayer is the best weapon we have; it is the key to God’s heart.  You must speak to Jesus not only with your lips but with your heart; in fact on certain occasions you should speak to Him only with your heart... One searches for God in books.  One finds Him in meditation.”
